    I have been a regular FreeBSD user since 2016 , I have ran it on work laptops(dual booted with Debian, for VoIP :) and on various desktops and have advocated about it, blogged about Jails, and filed bug reports on bugzilla and some third-party projects to get the OS supported. Tried to "do my...
